Event description

Description

Reclaim the Night is a women’s rally and march that demands the end of men’s violence against women. On October 25th we band together and take our voices to the streets. All women have the right to safety and to live free from violence.

At this year’s Reclaim the Night Brisbane 2019 we stand with survivors of sexual violence and say “We Believe You”. 1 in 5 women experience sexual violence in their lifetime, however, these experiences are vastly under-reported. ‘We believe you’ addresses a pervasive cultural attitude in not believing women when they disclose their experience of sexual violence. Many women have attempted to find justice through reporting and have not been believed. Many women choose not to report or disclose to friends and family due to unhelpful messages from their communities, friends and family, the police and the justice system.

Together we can transform the way we respond to disclosures, work towards changing the narrative and foster a safer community. Together we can call out the institutions that silence and dismiss survivors.

IT STARTS BY BELIEVING, IT STARTS WITH YOU

All women and non-binary people are welcome to march.

RALLY STARTS AT 5PM QUEENS GARDENS (PARK ) GEORGE ST CBD
MARCH TBA

We will keep you updated on speakers, performers, stall holders and march details!
